The Road to SSI Reduction for Colorectal Surgery

Within the context of a highly functioning Enhanced Recovery Pathway, SSI reduction is about responding to data and outcomes. This talk will focus on a real life implementation of a best practices SSI reduction strategy, with further modifications based on best evidence, data and outcomes.

What’s teamwork got to do with it? Exploring teamwork and communication for advancing care

How we work as a team and communicate with each other are essential elements of a healthy culture. Improving non-technical skills such as how we communicate, how we respond to the environment around us, and how we work together in a team are crucial for achieving high quality patient care. This 3 hour interactive workshop will explore how to improve patient outcomes and team culture by enhancing teamwork and communication.
